Here's a little background: My enlistment ends September of next year, so I'm almost done with the military.
I just got a call from my unit, asking if i wanted to volunteer to be deployed with another unit. They are leaving for Iraq soon (about a month) and will be gone for a year.
It's my dream job and something I've always wanted to do, we will make a lot of money while I'm over there, but I am completely torn. I am a SAHM and love my daughter more than anything...but she also just turned 2 in May and will probably no even remember that I was gone when she's older. What would you do in my situation? Oh and I've never been deployed before. ANY advice is very much welcome!
